The Nokia E71, E66 and E63 have all received a new firmware update taking them to V400.21.013. Neither devices support FOTA (Firmware-over-the-air) therefore to get this new firmware you will need to plug yourself into a PC and use either NSU (Nokia Software Updater) or the Ovi Suite. Remember neither handset supports UDP (User Data Preservation) either so make sure you do a full backup before updating your device. Provisional changelog after the jump.

Introducing Nokia Easy Meet

14. April 2009 at 22:32

Nokia Easy Meet just had been introduced by Nokia Beta Labs.Nokia Easy Meet is an intuitive mobile collaboration tool that allows for real-time sharing of content using mobile devices as well as PCs. The service is extremely easy to use. In fact, no software download is required for any device. All you need is access to an Internet browser. From either a PC or a mobile device, the user simply has to enter the Nokia Easy Meet URL and then create a meeting. The service supports regularly scheduled as well as ad hoc meetings. Once you create a meeting, the service sends out an email and/or SMS to each participant. With just one click, each participant can join the meeting and view the content shared by the host. Content can come directly from the host’s device or from remote servers (via OVI Files). Unlike many other web-based collaboration tools, Nokia Easy Meet allows mobile devices users to fully participate in the service. Mobile device users can see, interact with, and share content directly on or from the device. By providing complete functionality to mobile devices, mobile participants aren’t at a disadvantage in the meeting setting.

The following features are currently supported by Easy Meet:

  • File Sharing, supporting PPT, JPEG and PNG
  • Chat
  • Meeting Minutes
  • Whiteboard
  • Gesturing
  • File Downloads
